3.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant but slightly forgettable flight, 18 Mar 2010
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Last Voyage (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For many the appeal for this audio adventure will be David Tennant in his second last time out as the Doctor after 2009's Christmas specials (well, at least until his career slows down and he hits the convention-and-audiobook circuit), The Last Voyage is a decent yarn, though it's not too hard to understand why it didn't make it to TV. As a story it's probably too similar to both Midnight and a smaller scale version of Voyage of the Damned to work on the screen without seeming overfamiliar (it's another tourist trip gone horribly wrong), but author Dan Abnett has a good descriptive turn of phrase and it holds the interest even if it doesn't linger in the memory too long. Rather than a full cast dramatisation, this is another budget production read by Tennant in a Scottish accent he drops when voicing the Doctor and a variety of less successful ones for the other characters. Unfortunately American women aren't one of his better party pieces, and as a result the story's heroine ends up sounding a bit like Eric Idle in a Monty Python sketch, but then nobody's perfect - not even ex-Time Lords.
